Adoptable Pet of the Week: Queenie

I pronounce the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week, Queenie. This 4-year-old royal lady is a Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix looking for a patient and confident forever friend.

Here’s what her friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation had to say:

Queenie is a beautiful and friendly lil lady ready to make your acquaintance. She’s a friendly, active and energetic girl who loves people, treats and toys. She walks well on the leash and is a nice car companion. She loves cuddling and being around her humans, following them around everywhere, so would enjoy a family that will be around a lot! She warms right up and works her way into your lap. She is incredibly loving – she loves pets and will show you affection back! She also loves all toys!

Queenie is smart, and did we mention, motivated by yummy treats? She looks forward to continuing her training journey with a patient and confident owner. Right now, she knows how to “sit” and “lie down” and even “wait” on command. The sky’s the limit with Queenie!

She’s selective about her dog friends and needs slow introductions — best to skip the dog park with this independent girl and spend your time bonding and exercising elsewhere!
